Federal states with the most people over 80

People over 80 belong to the first group to be immunized against Covid-19. The Federal Ministry of Health has regulated this in an ordinance based on vaccination recommendations from the Standing Vaccination Commission at the Robert Koch Institute. Nursing staff also enjoy top priority.
